Sharing Global Faith

By Eric Cherry

Sharing Global Faith gathers Unitarian and Universalist voices from around the world in a unique devotional e-resource. Reflecting on various aspects of faith life, participants share spiritual insight into the stories and thoughts that fuel their ministerial call. Distributed monthly from April until September 2009, the publication seeks to deepen international connections and nourish the individual spirit.In the inaugural edition, three global luminaries explore the meaning of DIGNITY to our faith tradition by reflecting on an excerpt from Emerson's Essay on Friendship. We are honored to include the following contributions:
  • Rev. Brian Kiely (Unitarian Church of Edmonton, Alberta - Canada; President of the International Council of Unitarians and Universalists) locates human dignity in everyday stories of courage and goodness.
  • Mr. Alex Szeto (President of the Unitarian Universalists of Hong Kong) rejoices in the heart's inner wealth of kindness and love, which grows to fruition in this 'healing tradition.'
  • Rev. Jill McAllister (People's Church in Kalamazoo, MI) turns to Buddhist teachings to emphasize the importance of cultivating a non-judgmental, generous sensibility towards other human beings.
